Dear international applicants/admitted students in China,

The Office of Admissions at University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) is closely monitoring the developments related to the recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus. We understand that the outbreak has affected many Chinese students’ ability to submit applications and schedule visa appointments. UCCS is committed to supporting students’ needs and providing special assistance for our applicants/admitted students during this difficult time.

Individualized Application/Enrollment Assistance

If you would like to have an individualized conversation with our Office of Admissions regarding your application/enrollment process, including clarification about English proficiency options and alternatives for Chinese applicants unable to access standard English testing centers at this time, please email us at to schedule a Wechat session (in Mandarin or English).

We hope that this additional support will help alleviate some of your concerns during this time.
